Boat Noodle Express – Brave these Fiery Thai Noodles in Rivervale Plaza
If you’re living in Sengkang and craving for a hot bowl of Thai boat noodles, you’re in luck. The Boat Noodle Express (previously know as Noodle Café – Thai Boat Noodles) has just opened its third outlet right here in Rivervale Plaza. With its origins tied to the Noodle Café outlet over at Golden Mile Complex, Boat Noodle Express has since separated from them and established a ‘’same same but different” type of menu.
You would be able to spot Boat Noodle Express operating on the ground level of Rivervale Plaza. I didn’t know what to choose from, seeing the menu boasts a number of Thai-inspired dishes. Upon the staff’s recommendation, we had the Pork Special Boat Noodle ($4.80), which is essentially a bowl of soup piled with glass noodles and swimming with slices of pork, meat balls and beansprouts. I swore I could have become addicted to the spiciness of the pork broth, if not for its somewhat bland taste. Fortunately, you can use their condiments such as sugar and chilli to enhance the taste of the broth. I also liked that the glass noodles are cooked well.
I forgot to mention that you can choose your type of noodles for every noodle dish that you order. However, I stuck to glass noodles for all my noodle dishes including the Pork Tom Yum Noodle Dry ($5.50). The dry noodles were tossed in a Tom Yum mixture which had a myriad of Thai spices. The pork slices were sweet, but slightly overcooked.
If you find the noodle dishes too spicy, do order a glass of Signature Thai Ice Milk Tea ($2.50) to douse the spiciness of the noodles. However, I would have prefer it if the sweet milk tea could have had a thicker texture. Since my friends and I were sharing, we also got a plate of Mini Fish Wanton ($3.50) which came with a small portion of Thai chilli sauce. The wantons were crackly, albeit small, and the filling had a subtle fish taste that tasted well with the chilli sauce.
Boat Noodle Express also offers a couple of sides worth trying. Go for the Thai Made Pork Crackling ($2.80) and Homemade Pork Lard ($2.80). Just remember to ask for less spice in your noodle dishes if you are unable to take spicy food..
